A key indicator of College & Career Readiness is whether students are graduating High School HAVING Completed the UC/CSU Application Requirements.
What are the UC/CSU application requirements?
a. History/Social Science (2 years)
b. English (4 years)
c. Mathematics (3 years, UC recommends 4)
d. Laboratory Science (2 years, UC recommends 3)
e. Language Other than English (2 years, UC recommends 3)
f. Visual/Performing Arts (1 year)
g. College Preparatory Elective (1 year)
And why are they important?
The University of California (UC) system and the California State University system require entering freshmen to complete certain courses prior to attending. These courses are called the “a-g” courses.
Along with being required for full access to college, these requirements are also meant to provide skills critical to success in the workplace.
